If you have an occasional look around the Wiiâ€™s Virtual Console section then the Hanabi Festival may ring a bell with you. Nintendo have held a few of these in the past, during which a handful of games that were never released outside of certain countries spring up to download.
They’re at it again this month and it’s a right old mixed bag with highlights including Orge Battle (SNES), Pulseman (Mega Drive), Detana Twin Bee (Turbografx) and Star Tropics II (NES). The other four are Bomberman â€™94 (Turbografx), Kirby Dream Land 3 (SNES), Smash Table Tennis (NES) and shoot’em up MUSHA (Mega Drive).
No Nintendo 64 games this time round it would seem, but seeing that Sin & Punishment cost an absurd 1200 Wii Points (200 more than Nintendo 64 games usually cost) it’s not an entirely bad thing.
